Recent Purchase: Lush Online


This post is kind of a mix of first impressions, a recent purchases haul kind of post and some mini reviews as I bought a mix of new things to me and old favourites. I’m going to go into more detail with a couple of them in the future when I’ve tried them out some more. Two of them are from the Lush Kitchen which means they’re limited edition, the one is online only but the other is available in Lush Oxford Street store if you live near there.

In this order I bought the Olive Branch shower gel in the 250g size, the Self Preserving Dream Cream and a 250g chunk of Dream Wash from the permanent line as well as the Comforter Shower Jelly and the Perspective lipstick which is the one from the Oxford Street store. There is a version of Perspective available on the website, it’s in the original Emotional Brilliance glass bottle style packaging, but this is the more solid stick lipstick style, I’m not sure how they compare but just to know this exact product isn’t available online any more.

August Empties: My First Empties Post


I realise I don’t really do empties posts, that’s mainly because most months I either forget to take photos of my empties (I may have done that with a couple of things this month too) or I just don’t finish off enough product sin a month to be worth doing the post. Most of the products I buy tend to last a long time and they get finished in dribs and drabs but this month it ended up that I finished quite a few things in one go so thought I’d do one. I do like reading these from other people, seeing what people actually would repurchase sometimes helps me decide if it’s a product that I’ on the fence about.

I was planning on combining my monthly favourites with the empties post but it got so long I’m doing it in two, I think the monthly favourites will be on Monday. There are some things in this post that I forgot to photograph, I’m not used to doing these posts. Maybe in the future I’ll keep all my empties and just do them when I get enough to be worth posting rather than setting it as a monthly thing. Anyway, here’s what I finished off this month and whether I’d repurchase them in the future and why. There are a couple of sample products in here but most of them are full sized.

Old vs New: Comforter Shower Gel vs The Comforter Shower Cream from Lush


Another old vs new from Lush, though the old version has never been a permanent product. Throughout the years that I’ve been buying Lush, and before, they have done various shower gels with the scent of the Comforter bubble bar. This particular bottle I’m using as a comparison was from a recent Kitchen batch but when I bought it I compared it to an old bottle I had and it smelled pretty much the same so I’d say it’s a pretty good representation of any of their forum special shower gels with this scent.

I can’t remember the exact price of the shower gel, I think it was £10.95 as that’s a pretty standard price for the Lush Kitchen shower gels in the 250g bottles. The shower cream version is a permanent product and available in four different sizes; 100g (£4.95), 250g (£9.75), 500g (£16.50) and a big 1kg bottle (£27.95) so the bigger the bottle the better value you get. I’ve had some of the bigger bottle break in the past so be careful if you get one of them. Both of these versions are suitable for vegans and cruelty free as well which is always good. This can be found in their stores, I think it’s in all of them but not sure outside the UK, and online here.
